        Assertions and requirements? All I asked was a process by
 which things could be tabled before the ctte. (I asked plainly, too,
 I thought).

        My goals and aspirations, in this regard, are simple: create a
 process for tabling RFC for us. Really. No hidden agenda
 there. No big words either.

        I guess I must have lost my english.

        There shall be a number of decisions we have to make in the
 future. Not being clairvoyant, I am unable to fill you in on all the
 gory details.

 Dale> Come on, Manoj, cough it up. What _do_ you want from us?

        *Sigh*. Once agaain, how does anyone submit stuff for the ctte
 to consider? If you all think a mail message is enough, say so, and
 be done with it.

 Those for whom there is no more acquisition, who are fully aware of
 the nature of food, whose dwelling place is an empty and imageless
 release - the way of such people is hard to follow, like the path of
 birds through the sky. 92
